Project description


Shard filenames into subdirectories.

A large number of files in a single directory can make operations such as listing or browsing cumbersome. Splitting files into subdirectories alleviates this.


Two methods are provided:

def shardprefix(filename: str) -> str:
"""Return a 2 character alphanumeric string by deterministically hashing filename"""

def sharded(filepath: Path) -> Path:
 """Return path sharded into subdirectory"""


ShardedDirectory provides getting file paths from a directory:

sharded_tmp = ShardedDirectory('/tmp)

return /tmp/ep.python.
